This is quite a pretty walk, close to downtown Saco. There is another riverwalk in Biddeford, which starts in Mechanic Park. In Saco, the Riverwalk offers a nice stroll away from the city along the river. After about a quarter mile, there is a path that takes you through a hole in a large fence along a well-worn trail to some rock ledges and cliffs that have lovely views over the river and back toward the city. If you continue on this path, you’ll end up at a cemetery. When I was here, several locals were using the trail, but I wasn’t sure the status of the path — if it’s on private land or not.
Directions: From Pepperell Square in Saco, follow Front Street to the boat launch. Park here and walk toward the treatment center along the sidewalk. The path begins behind the plant.
